    Finding Answers through Astrology with Lucy Pond

    Finding Answers through Astrology with Lucy Pond

    This podcast year is ending with a very special interview of Lucy Pond, a well-known astrologer who combines tarot with her readings. A perhaps lesser-known gift she has, is that she is also an accomplished and multi-faceted artist. 
    In fact, this show may be best appreciated on my YouTube channel where you can see Lucy showing examples of the art she discusses with me.  (If you’re interested in watching, link is below in show notes.)
    Before we jump right into the discussion, I want to give you a some of her official biography. Lucy currently lives in New Mexico, and is originally from Washington state, having graduated from the University of Washington in Humanities. 
    She has been a practicing astrologer and tarot reader since 1972. She owned a Metaphysical bookshop in Maui for 5 years and then Seattle. She was the Vice-president and President of the Washington State Astrological Association,  and studied at the Northwest School of Astrology with Marc Robertson’s classes. With Joanne Wickenburg, she taught and operated an astrological school in Seattle.
    She is co-author of  The Metaphysical Handbook with her brother, David Pond, as well as contributed chapters in astrological books and has been published in The Mountain Astrologer.
    She has sponsored astrological conferences in Seattle, has  taught classes in metaphysical awareness in Tulum, Mexico, and has participated in Womens Day Spa retreats in Vancouver,  British Columbia and Seattle. She has made multiple television and radio appearances in Seattle, Vancouver, and Maui, and has been on multiple podcasts. 
    But seldom has she shared her personal journey on those podcasts. So I am especially delighted and honored that she agreed to be with us to tell us more of the story of how she chose the work she does, and how it plays the role in her life that it clearly does. 
    I hope you enjoy the show!

    Denise Mange: Elevating Lives of Purpose

    Denise Mange: Elevating Lives of Purpose

    Denise Mange, founder and owner of PetPrana® elevates lives of various species — human and animal, and has created a new industry model to do exactly that! 

    I’m an animal lover and animals play a large role in my life, so it was a treat that Denise agreed to be a guest on my show.  And I couldn’t have been more delighted to have the time together to get to know her and learn more about her business and vision.

    Certified dog trainer, pet intuitive, pet numerologist, and visionary business owner, Denise believes everyday interactions with our pets have the power to transform us. Her work combines traditional obedience training with energetic considerations of pet guardianship to facilitate meaningful connections and behavioral shifts for both you and your pets.

    Her service offerings reflect her skills, professionalism, creativity, experience, and vision as they encompass all aspects of how to reach our pets — and how they can reach us. 

    In Denise’s words: “Energy connects us all. As one of our most honest connections, everyday interactions with pets have the power to transform us. When we mindfully train, live, and connect with our animal companions, our pets' behavior gives us insight into changes we can make in our own lives. And when we make those changes, we vibe higher, allowing our pets to shift their behavior and energy, too.”

    It was a genuine pleasure creating this episode and I hope you enjoy it!

    A FEW FINE POINTS OF THE CONVERSATION

    How the world of advertising and Denise’s corporate experience fosters intuitive development The role of symbolism in Denise’s life and work Animals as a mirror Why reading a room is crucial — regardless of whether the industry is advertising or pet parenting The power of words: the criticality of using proper language Denise’s unique animal communication, and how it differs from other animal communicators Why and when Denise temporarily shut down her intuition — and the opportunity she has now to do things differently for someone else The wholistic approach of healing A new paradigm of pet guardianship The new level of understanding regarding energy How Denise sees her ultimate role in life Pet chakras and how they differ (or don’t) from human chakras The model of Pet Rescue Pilots and the result of positive, uplifting messaging in a brand A special trait of Denise’s  How to raise the energy with pet guardianship — even if you don’t have a pet What’s next from Denise — short and long term  And so much more!

    Creativity & Relationships with the Angels

    Creativity & Relationships with the Angels

    A new season of the show opens with a fan (and host) favorite guest, angel communicator, Sheri Perbeck. This is a chatty show, and despite some technical glitches, they don’t interfere with the message, even though at times it seems as if I’m talking over my dear guest. (My editor did his magic but he had a faulty tape to work with.)
    Sheri and I turned on the audio earlier than we usually do so you hear more of our personal catch-up time, including what’s been happening with us during the pandemic thus far. Later in the show, you get to meet Sheri’s pup and hear a bit about one of mine. (Watch the episode on YouTube for the visuals.)
    We discuss the themes the angels have as well as the connections we see between those themes. And then suggest some tools to enhance working with the angels and their message.
    During the show, Sheri brings forward a message the angels bring. It’s an encouraging one about our future. 
    Tune in, be well, and stay well.  I hope you enjoy the show.
